Updates to this registry entry:
1. Now used as a daily driver, when not using the 456.
2. Has, as of Nov. 24, 2009 about 34,000 miles
3. Starting to develope a slight whine in the power assisted steering: which I'll have to address -- AGAIN. last time just changed the fluid and good to go.
4. Doing a tonneau for it, the new leather seats. Will be doing a 2nd set of front seats for daily, then put in pristine original fronts when showing or [gulp] selling to next owner.
5. Side stakes, showing signs of age, as this year used plastic. Have a 1 year older set made of metal, which will be re-painted and replaced.
6. Have many extra parts, that are the original, keeping for next owner, as part of original full mfgr. 'stuff'.
Didn't like my entry so re-do

- Changing out original plastic side grills for 1989 T-Metal grills: OEM's too fragile, see pic.
- Quick Pony: Adequate torque above 3k RPM
- Never, I mean never have doubts that I can hug the road in mountain tight corners without loosing the rear etc.: Very confident this car has power when needed.
- Somewhat confortable: after a long drive, ya' might want to loosen up.
- Turns heads: People like this over newer models as it looks more classic. Matter of fact, I consider this the last, classic looking Ferrari. The 355, 456 series [not talking F40/50 stuff as they were low numbers] were the start of the more smooth looks.
- Every time I see this on the road or in my mirrors I fall in love with the classic looks every time....sign, how could/can I part with it.
NOW, some pics: I'll post sometime using the T for camping
be surprised what you can stuff in those trunks and back seat.
